A new steering committee for Antigua Classic is led by Carlo Falcone as chairman, with Cameron Fraser as vice-chair and Franklyn Braithwaite as commodore of the Antigua YC.
The committee says: “The main aim of this new committee is to make sure all our competitors are happy. It is therefore focussing more on what happens on the water by introducing windward starts and new courses so that the racing is both safer and more challenging.
“The definition of classic boat eligibility for registration is also under review and meanwhile a new Dragon class will be included at the Regatta in 2019.
“We will still be holding our very popular shore-based parties and social events, such as music night and the sea shanty competition, and other traditional events that celebrate this unique and world-class event.”
A number of yachts have already expressed interest in or registered for the 2019 event here www.antiguaclassics.com/registration/
